Working Paper 14-2009

My latest paper on the development of Open Source software has been published as a DEAS Working Paper at the Department of Economics of the University of Milan.

It deals with the inner workings of the community of Open Source software developers, using experimental and agent-based methodologies. Its main result is that FOSS communities harness risk-taking attitudes by memebers, and are able to turn them into collective gains.

The paper can be found:

Moreover, the paper has been presented at the very interesting Padova FLOSS Workshop, and let me thank the participants for a wonderful two day experience and for valuable comments!
